Question and answer
give serious medical coomplicatins that can develop if type 2 diabetes is not treated
People with type 2 diabetes are also at risk for nerve damage (neuropathy) and abnormalities in both small and large blood vessels (vascular injuries) that occur as part of the diabetic disease process. [ Such abnormalities produce complications over time in many organs and structures in the body. Although these complications tend to be more serious in type 1 diabetes, they still are of concern in type 2 diabetes. Most people with diabetes should aim for fasting blood glucose levels of less than 110 mg/dL and hemoglobin HbA1C of less than 7%. Both type 1 and 2 diabetes speed the progression
of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Diabetes is often associated with low HDL ("good" cholesterol) and high triglycerides. This can lead to coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke. Impaired nerve function (neuropathy) associated with diabetes also causes heart abnormalities. Women with diabetes are at particularly high risk for heart problems and death from heart disease and overall causes. ]
